This collection of tales and traditions from the Southwest includes stories of lost mines stacked with bars of gold, mule loads of silver cached away in outlaw hoards, and fabulous Jesuit treasures buried when that order was expelled from New Spain. Some treasure locations would be rediscovered by chance or by an old map-and somehow always lost again. But not all these folk teasures are of material wealth. There is the story of a nun who loved a soldier and repented, and whose kneeling figure may still be seen as a mountain rock formation. There is the Hermit of Las Vegas, an actual person who, after traveling between Argentina and Quebec, settled in New Mexico, where he became the subject of affectionate legends.

This book contains 92 stories of Lost Mines and Treasurers, of Oklahoma and Texas. Many of the stories concern treasurers buried by the French, British, Indians and Colonial settlers during the many wars that rocked the area in the 18th and 19th centuries. I found the data for this book while doing research on old mines for my series of books Mines of the American West. The "Lost Mines and Treasurers" were identified from articles in early American newspapers and other sources considered reliable. Where possible, for those lost treasures still to be found, I have tried to tie them to modern mines or areas and include some background data on such areas. In doing this, some of them seemed to "fall short" in the area of fact and logic. The reader should understand that this is a collection of data from old and new publications and not a focused specifically on the effort to find the specific properties, although some research, especially from a logic standpoint, has been done. If the reader can glean critical information from these original articles and the limited research that allows or helps him or her to locate a "lost mine" or "lost treasure", I wish him or her well and leave it to them to reap the rewards.The print version of this book has been produced in the 81⁄2" X 11" format to keep the price low. If done in 6" X 9" or smaller, the book would be 2 or 3 times as many pages in length and would cost substantially more to increased "on demand" print costs. These seem to be heavily influenced by the total number of pages. While this may be one of the seeming drawbacks to "on-demand printing", the benefit of "on-demand printing" is that specialty books, such as this, are now practical to publish where the target market may be relatively small and minimal returns to the author are acceptable.

Do you know how Oklahoma came to have a panhandle? Did you know that Washington Irving once visited what is now Oklahoma? Can you name the official state rock, or list the courses in the official state meal? The answers to these questions, and others you may not have thought to ask, can be found in this engaging collection of tales by renowned journalist-historian David Dary. Most of the stories gathered here first appeared as newspaper articles during the state centennial in 2007. For this volume Dary has revised and expanded them—and added new ones. He begins with an overview of Oklahoma’s rich and varied history and geography, describing the origins of its trails, rails, and waterways and recounting the many tales of buried treasure that are part of Oklahoma lore. But the heart of any state is its people, and Dary introduces us to Oklahomans ranging from Indian leaders Quanah Parker and Satanta, to lawmen Bass Reeves and Bill Tilghman, to twentieth-century performing artists Woody Guthrie, Will Rogers, and Gene Autry. Dary also writes about forts and stagecoaches, cattle ranching and oil, outlaws and lawmen, inventors and politicians, and the names and pronunciation of Oklahoma towns. And he salutes such intellectual and artistic heroes as distinguished teacher and writer Angie Debo and artist and educator Oscar Jacobson, one of the first to focus world attention on Indian art. Reading this book is like listening to a knowledgeable old-timer regale his audience with historical anecdotes, “so it was said” tall tales, and musings on what it all means. Whether you’re a native of the Sooner State or a newcomer, you are sure to learn much from these accounts of the people, places, history, and folklore of Oklahoma.
